Proposed Regulation – Orthotics and Prosthetics Board of Examiners

NEWARK – The New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs has proposed amendments to regulations regarding scope of practice for licensed orthotist assistants and licensed prosthetist assistants.

N.J.A.C. 13:44H-2.1 and 2.2 set forth the scope of practice for licensed orthotist assistants and licensed prosthetist assistants. The Orthotics and Prosthetics Board of Examiners proposes to amend these rules so that the scope of practice for assistants will reflect national standards. The proposal would also require that the education for licensure as an assistant include courses in human anatomy, medical terminology, and general/fundamental physics from an accredited college or university. 

The proposed amendments, and information on how to submit a comment by July 20, 2018, can be viewed here.
